Collington is blessed with a large campus much of which is forest, wild and cultivated bushes, shrubs, a large open field, ponds, and streams. In other words, a unique parkland in a metropolitan area. The wildlife and especially bird life is abundant.
Early September 2020, Joe Howard suggested to Mike Burke that we should establish an informal “Bird Discussion Group” by e-mail. Mike, who is a bird expert, agreed and a new group was enthusiastically formed on the “Collington Discussion Group” with a membership now over 40 residents.

Mike and Anne Chase have collaborated on a survey asking members about their interests. Following is a selected brief summary.
Stay tuned for future lectures, movies, campus bird walks and posts regarding bird facts and interesting sitings here at Collington.
